B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 5 MAY 2012

Prior to joining Chris Bell and forming Big Star, Alex Chilton (seen here with Dan Penn), itching to get out of his contract with The Box Tops, started recording his own penned songs with the assistance of the fledging Ardent Studios and its propietor Terry Manning. The result is a exhuberant collection of songs, many of which predate a number of bands that copped Chilton's wide-eyed talent. Omnivore Records has recently released a great reissue of the 1969 solo record, Free Again: The "1970" Sessions.
